Can I share a subset of ACS data with students in my econometrics course for educational purposes?

Can I share a subset of ACS data (~10 vars for adults aged 18-65 from 2000-2015) with students in my econometrics course? It is for teaching purposes only and because it will only be used during a single seminar, it would be impractical to ask them each to select and download the dataset.

Yes, you are permitted to share a subset of the public use ACS data from 2010-2015 with students in your classroom. We typically recommend professors encourage their students to learn how to use the resources available via IPUMS by having them download data themselves, but ultimately it is your decision if this is practical.
